Almost sidetracked

Leave a comment

After a few weeks back at the grind and the small stuff that goes along with life, I find my vacation karma is about gone. Now my fight is to regain that peace and thoughtful relaxed look and ability to experience and enjoy life. Yes there is lots on the agenda. Yes work is getting busy and mother nature is waging a war of wars this year with all the rain. But I will overcome

So I’m going to end and start this coming week on a high note. Tomorrow I’m going to try to squeeze in a ton of shooting. Also going to check out making it a short work week if the weather is good on Wednesday, I might take a day. If not I’ll just save it for a later date.

I’m finally learning that keeping that positive attitude and outlook makes the difficult times much easier to power through. A lesson that is far overdue for me getting in the tool bag. So here is to a long and prosperous week ahead. May each remaining sunset this summer end this way. I’m tired of the dinnertime thunderstorms.


Random Thoughts of the Day

Someone put a bunch of gravel in my neck. At least that is the sound it makes when I roll my head around. Sort of like a truck driving over gravel.

Funny how the Atlantic Ocean calls me all summer. I must respond soon.

If you don’t know how important it is to spend time with your children even when they are grown, then you’re missing out.

Howard County Fair opened today. I need to go out and be inspired by our youth and farming roots of the county. Plus some junk food and maybe a few old friends passing in the crowd.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
